Built on a 37-year history in apheresis collection, HemaCare Bioresearch Products and Services is a trusted research partner and leader in human primary cell and tissue collection, processing and cell therapy. Located in Van Nuys, California, HemaCare provides high-quality biological material derived from normal and mobilized peripheral blood, bone marrow and cord blood needed to ensure quality research outcomes that meet the unique needs of the scientific community.
As biomedical companies like HemaCare adapt to meet the growing needs of their customers, it is necessary to be flexible. For such companies operating in a heavily regulated environment, powerful yet configurable software can help meet these challenges and take advantage of new business opportunities. Today, Freezerworks’ sample management software plays an important role in managing the movement of blood products in a global market from production, storage, sale and shipment. And, because of Freezerworks’ configurable nature, HemaCare officials are now looking at ways to expand its use in a timely and seamless manner to meet those new opportunities.

When we developed the first version of Freezerworks in 1992, we did it with true configurability in mind. This means your workflow is supported by Freezerworks rather than your workflow needing to adapt to the software. The configurable nature of Freezerworks further ensures it will continue to support your workflow as your needs and processes change and grow. A competitor may provide similar functionality in many areas. However, Freezerworks excels in how that functionality is integrated into your existing operations.
Don’t underestimate the value of having sample management software. Though you may think that your facility is doing just fine without sample manager software or sample tracking software, you may have a greater need for a more competent, digital system than you suppose. Consider the following.
If you are part of a biorepository or institution that does clinical research, you understand the importance of sufficient sample tracking and workflow management. While achieving these results in an efficient way can be difficult, the advancements in biobanking software have made it possible to find exactly what your lab needs to do your job correctly.

Freezerworks today announces the release of Freezerworks 2015, a major upgrade of the popular and long standing sample management program. The upgrade offers advanced patient data management and security along with a number of feature improvements in usability. The upgrade also integrates its two laboratory sample management programs, Basic and Unlimited, into a new single platform. Current owners will be able to upgrade their versions of either product into one of three editions. The single integrated platform offers a greater number of features for current users of both programs. Continue reading “Product News: Freezerworks 2015 Released”→
The new logo represents a new day for a software program that is already well regarded in the laboratory research community
Mountlake Terrace, WA – March 30, 2015
On April 1, 2015, Dataworks Development, Inc.released a new logo design for its laboratory information management system in anticipation of the release of their latest product, Freezerworks 2015. This software upgrade will feature some significant and important changes, and the company says it wanted a new logo to symbolize this fresh start.
To highlight the company’s roots in the Pacific Northwest and its proximity to the area’s mountain ranges, Freezerworks 2015 has chosen a decidedly alpine theme. The upgrade integrates the basic and premium versions of its software into a single platform and offers users three editions to choose from: Base, Ascent and Summit.
The College of American Pathologists (CAP) accreditation program for biorepositories is relatively new, having begun in 2012. The Genetic Resources Core Facility (GRCF) Biorepository and Cell Center at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine recently became the twelfth biorepository accredited by CAP. According to its Director, Melissa Olson, PhD, the process, which she describes as a “major reorganizational effort”, was well worth it.
CAP accreditation, famous for its detailed checklists to ensure that quality policies and procedures are in place, offers for the biorepository “an overall outline to look at every aspect of this industry and make sure that all the pieces work together,” Olson said. And even though an inspection can sound like a way to ensure sleepless nights, the end result – standardization – is actually stress-reducing.
A Spotlight on the Laboratory of Cellular Physiology and Immunology at the Rockefeller University
“Perhaps my favorite thing about Freezerworks is that I spend less time working on weekends and more time with my wife and dogs.”
James Pring Co-Facilities Manager Steinman Lab at Rockefeller University
Founded by Nobel Laureate Dr. Ralph Steinman, the discoverer of dendritic cells, the Laboratory of Cellular Physiology and Immunology at the Rockefeller University in New York City works to further understand the nature of the immune system and how it relates to dendritic cells. In order to accomplish their goal of using this information to produce real-world benefits, researchers here are currently running a proof-of-concept trial that target antigens within antibodies of dendritic cells in vivo as well as 3 adjuvant trials.
